Does your friend have his own computer?

It's seems obvious, but don't see that anywhere in your post.

Alright, for being French, your english is pretty good.

But quite frankly, I do not know your problem. Are you playing on the same server? It may be the server's fault. Try The Archives, if that doesn't work, then your friend has a problem with his computer.

Yes we play on the same server and on the same internet connexion. When my friend is at his home he can come in my server but when he use my internet connexion he can't join it. (He can play on other server and every body can join my server without problems)

Is your server a custom-server? His computer might be struggling with that...

What is the difference between a custom-server and the other servers?

Because i don't know this term. For me, i think i use a normal server.

A custom server doesn't matter, alot of people have issues trying to connect through the same network/connection. Use the over-ride link or internal link.

You gotta forward ports or some shit.

I'm not entirely sure of this, but I don't believe two players can connect to a server with the same IP address.

I've did that before, it was 2 different computers on the same network that connected to a server.

After test, we can play (me and my friend, with 2 account, 2 computers, and the same connection) in a server who is not mine. So when we go in a server public we can play together. But we can't play in my server (he is in my computer). Tomorrow, i'm going to put my server on the computer of an other friend for test.

You mean Lan IP Address? Otherwise you mean WAN (External)

Ah. So you cannot play in your server? I'm sure this has something to do with IP addresses, you're going to have to have him use another connection to play, as for some reason, it won't let more than one person using your IP address use your server. Try running the server and have him get onto it alone on the same computer that you're running the server on. (Which I asume is the same computer you use to play.)

I've posted about this before. Notch tells me that the website does not look at the internal part of the IP address, so connecting to a server on the same internal network will not work.

For example, if the server is 123.456.1 and the client is 123.456.2, the client is only going to try and connect to 123.456, which the network profitably sees as the same computer.

The only way I can connect to my own server is by using a direct URL while "verify-names" is off. :cry:
